It worked once to revert it and the go back to 5.02, but now I it doesn't show my SSD in order to be able to select it for update.
What can I do in this case? Please help me!
I don't know if this is directly helpful. I just got a Force 3 240 GB drive, and the first thing I wanted to do was update the firmware. But before I did the firmware check, I partitioned and formatted the drive.
The result in the firmware updater tool was that the serial number was not displayed, and the capacity was displayed as something like 9 million TB!
Once I deleted all the partitions, the drive was properly recognized, with the right capacity.
The drive was already at FW 5.02, and it works fine in my laptop. I bought the laptop upgrade kit that costs $10 more than just the drive. For the extra $10, I got a neat cable and disk cloning software. All worked fine, and wow, is my laptop faster now.
